PROJECTS ESCH 2022
For this project, Lucoda has commissioned Out Innerspace Dance Theatre (Canada) to create an ensemble performance for Esch '22. The piece, choreographed by David Raymond and Tiffany Tregarthen will be a work for eight local dancers, and use a unique combination of light and video projection to draw the audience into the intriguing world of dance. The uniqueness of this project lies in how it promotes audience diversity in order to make dance accessible to all. In this context, a ticket “lottery” system will be put into place whereby the audience will be invited to participate in a challenge. This will aim to create surprise pairings with varied people within our communities, inviting them to create new encounters, while breaking down societal barriers, and aiming to create new relationships which last beyond the night of the performance.
In collaboration with the commune of Differdange, Lucoda will create a variety of site specific performances, which will lead the audience on unexpected journeys through the commune.
Ranging from dance performances in bus stops, pop-up dance experiences, community dance workshops and multi sensorial explorations and discoveries at the Differdange Science Centre, to a grand ballroom dance evening, we share but a few of the exciting performances to expect.
Lucoda in “The Visit”, offers two worlds to the audience; both a performative approach, with site-specific pieces, to a multi-disciplinary and digital work, with the creation of a short film which will highlight different geographical locations in the South of Luxembourg. Hence, the audience will embark on a unique journey, experiencing and being encouraged to discover new artistic perspectives, through the media of dance and film.
